Digging Deeper: Land Trusts: Preserving and Managing Open Spaces
Sat, Sep 9, 2023
10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Tickets for this Digging Deeper will be available on Friday, June 30.
This Digging Deeper is presented in partnership with The North Salem Open Land Foundation.
Join Pam Pooley, horticulturist and co-chair of the North Salem Open Land Foundation, on a tour of this bucolic landscape and learn about its history and efforts to preserve its beauty and conservation values, taking cues from the land. Pam will describe stewardship practices that take advantage of the meadow life cycle and promote desirable species such as pollinator-friendly plants, which are a food source for the abundance of birds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects and wildlife. Mowing regimens and plantings of native trees and shrubs with deer protection by tributaries that discourage aggressive invasive plants will be discussed. These sustainable management techniques can be adopted to benefit your own wild or cultivated gardens.
